"Seed" as written by Michael Guy Chislett, Andy Mrotek, Michael Carden and William Beckett....
Subjects are thrown around the room
Looking for the ones that got away
A feeling of soft anticipation
Another confrontation I won't make
But how do we do it
We turned into something else entirely
We fake it
But I wanted it so desperately to be real

Run, run, holding on to some pieces that you left behind
Hold now, as I walk away, you're the one that finds me out
Run from the only thing left that I hold close

I'll be letting you in
You've got the feeling you've been followed under your skin
It will be weighing on your shoulder, believe it.
If I could express it in a different dialect or in a delicate way
I'd capture the phrases inside the cage beneath my chest
And keep it locked for days
I wanted you so desperately to believe me

Run, run, why are you running from another conversation?
Someone that I've been planning on, you're the one that finds me out.
There's nowhere, now I found you, that I won't go.

I'm always letting you in.
You've got the feeling you've been followed under your skin.
It will be weighing on your shoulder.
You've got that seed in you.
You've got that seed in you.

Run, run, what are you running from?
Let all your small steps expose your secrets.
You don't have to speak for me to believe it.
But what do you mean?

Shaken and faint, you've got the feeling
you've been followed under your skin.
It will be weighing on your shoulder.
You've got that seed in you.
You've got that seed in
I'm letting you in.
You've got the feeling you've been followed.
Are you listening to anything I've said?
You've got that seed in you.

Shaken and faint, it was the hardest thing to swallow.
Pretending you don't miss me.
You've got that seed in you.
You've got that seed in

While letting you in, I'll be thinking about tomorrow.
And every time we cross those lines.
You've got that seed in you.
You've got that seed in

Oh no, as I walk away, everyone had found me out.

    General CommentI think that this song is about a girl cheating on him and he knows it.
    "Another confrontation I won't make, We fake it, I wanted this so desparetly to be real" meaning he doesn't want to confront her so he just pretends that he doesn't know even though it hurts.
    The "run run" part is about her avoiding him a bit and him hoping she finds out that he knows what she's doing.
    "while he's letting you in you've got the feeling you've been followed" meaning he followed her one time and saw her go in to another guys house.
    "There's nowhere now that I've found you that I won't go" I think means that know that he's positive she's cheating on him he'll do anything to fix the situation.
    "It will be weighing on your shoulder, you've got that seed in you" is saying that she feels bad about what she's doing to him, but not bad enough to stop.
    "Let the small steps expose your secret, you don't have to speak for me to believe it" meaning he wants her to make it obvious she's cheating and break up with him so that he'll finally have the truth.
    "Are you lisening to a thing I said" probably means he finally let her knows he knows and asked her to eaither stop or leave, but she pretended to play dumb and not pay attention.
    "Shaken and faint it was the hardest thing to swallow, pretending you don't miss me" meaning that even though they didn't break up, he deffinetly distanced himself from her and she's pretending to not notice/care.
    "While letting you in I'll be thinkng of tomorrow and evey time we cross those lines, you've got that seed in you" means that hes's thinking about his future with her and knowing that she'll cheat on him again because she's already crossed those lines and "has the seed" in her.
    "As I walk away I hope you're the one that finds me out" meaning he finally let her go and he hopes she figures out why.

    This is the first time I completely disected a song, so I'm sorry if it's laughable =)

    General Commentwow this is an amazing song. Santi is going to be fantastic I can't wait to hear it. I think it's shaking in bed instead of chicken in bed though.

    General CommentAP mag gave Santi 3 and a half stars.

    And I can see why. Songs like this and We've Got A Big Mess are really promising. I can't wait until April 3rd.

    As for the meaning, I'm not sure.

    I think it's about a girl leaving him, but for no real reason. She's running away from him.

    What this "Seed" is, I don't quite know...

    General CommentSanti has a lot of potential and im excited to hear the rest of the cd

    i dont really get what the "seed" is... im thinking it might be her desire to leave but thats a total guess

    i think the songs about a relationship that isn't going to well
    *we fake it, oh i wanted it so desperatly to be real*
    instead of talking out their problems she runs away from them
    *Run, Run, why are you running from another conversation?*
    she finally leaves for good because she cant figure him out but he's ok with it because hes used to being complicated and misunderstood
    *Hope, now, as i walk away
    That you'll never wanna find me out..*

    thats what i get from the song its probably wrong but either way its a pretty good song

    General CommentAnother one of the great songs on their new album.

    For some reason, I'm getting a feeling that the seed is something like guilt. You can't escape guilt ("You've been feeling like you've been followed under your skin") and it's a heavy burden if it has to do with relationships ("It will be weighing on your shoulder").

    General Commentive listened to the song a few times now and i cant help but think he's talking about kind of getting taken in by the glamour of the whole music industry and forgetting his roots, where they came from. as if they've forgotten about their beliefs and what their purpose was in making music.

    the "seed" is that background that they were raised on and how no matter how far you stray, it is always there. you can't lose it. you'll always come back. perhaps talking of their faith.
